Trendhunter shows pictures of “Vibering,” a vibrating bracelet that comes with two stylish rings. The wearer must wear both rings, not just one, for the system to work.
The system captures sounds and notifies the wearer of any sounds. The rings do the listening while the watch does the reporting of the identified sound. The rings listen for sounds coming from behind the wearer and determine the length and position of the sound.
“The wristwatch module will identify the sound wave and show results in an easy-to-read LCD display. Heck, it is even smart enough to recognize key phrases such as “Excuse Me”, your own name and even a vehicle’s horn.”
This bears the question of what will Vibering do in a noisy or public place?
I looked all over the Internet for more info on the product other than the standard release that you see in many blogs. No such luck. It could be in Chinese, which may be why I can’t find the original source. I’m sure we’ll hear more about this innovative product.
One thing. The name fits perfectly. However, before I read about the product, I thought the name sounded … ahem… pornographic. Sure enough, in searching for the original source, several XXX-rated products and sites showed up in the search results.
